P30 for sale

Now that both my sons have moved away, I'm no longer cruising as I once was; so I've decided to put my P30 on the market. Go to Facebook page Anna Pearson30 for details --

Re: P30 for sale

Just a suggestion...You need to advertise on more than just facebook.
Sailboatlistings.com and craigslist would be a good start.
De-junk the boat and take some interior photos so we can see what it looks like.
What's that one photo that looks like swirl marks? Not a clue what that is a picture of and to be honest, doesn't look inviting.

Re: P30 for sale

Thanks for the reply. I'm not advertising the boat on Facebook -- I'm using it as a convenient place for people to go read the detailed listing and see some photos. I just put it on the market yesterday and, aside from here, have only listed it locally in Greenwich, because I have a town mooring there, which a resident can take over. Which is why the price is high -- it includes the mooring, the winter stands, and the dinghy. Craigslist is a waste of time, for a boat like this; all the listings are small boats, power boats, or parts and services. As for the swirl pattern, that's explained pretty thoroughly in the caption.

P30 for sale

For what it's worth, I sold my 72 C&C 30 on Craig's list. Price was in the same ballpark. You will get some scam attempts, easy to weed out so just ignore them.

Re: P30 for sale

OK, I see your comments about the swirl. Interesting to know.
I don't disagree about Craigslist being mostly small power boats but a lot of people are on there everyday and you never know who might be reading your post. It's well worth a few minutes time to post there. My son sold his small power boat there a few years ago for $9000 - $500 off his asking price and that was when the economy was about at it's worst.

Re: P30 for sale

Found my P30 on Craigslist. Considering the cost (zero) it seems worth a shot.

Good luck with the sale.

Re: P30 for sale

I bought my P30 on Craigs list 5 years ago. Many of the smaller brokers in Annapolis post thier offerings there. It's a great place to look for local boats for sale.

Found my P30 on Craigslist as well. Sorry to hear that you're selling, hope you get close to your asking price.

Oh, I'm hull 225 so she's nearly a sister. Where is this boat?

Re: P30 for sale

Bought my P30 on E-Bay this past July and paid the asking price, (albeit with some parallel negotiating). Mid-70's Pearson's are great boats! Sorry to hear you're putting her up but, best wishes to you.

Re: P30 for sale

Ditto - I found and bought my P30 on Craigslist a year ago and I love my boat.

We should start a P30 group here and share pics/vids.
